Spring fever on Germany’s Black Forest gourmet trails
Nadine Fund, Nationalparkregion Schwarzwald - Renchtal/Durbach
The birds are chirping, the air is blissfully mild. Every day you discover more and more greenery on your doorstep; spring is a wonderful time for hiking. After the winter, you’ll be especially happy to spend a sunny day in the fresh air. All of the epicurean trails in this Collection are below 600 metres (2,000 ft) of altitude; spring arrives earlier here than higher up in the Black Forest.
From forests rich in legends to meadow orchards and vineyards, from traditional Black Forest houses to castle ruins and fortifications, these hikes are wonderfully varied and show you the best sides of the region. And even though you never really get up high on these Tours, some fantastic views await you.
All of the gourmet trails in the Black Forest have been awarded premium status by the German Hiking Institute. They’re varied and lead you away from roads and towns through peaceful landscapes with wild and romantic forests, meadows, gorges and valleys. You can expect wonderful half- and full-day Tours that show you some of the most beautiful places in this stunning area. They also take you to the culinary highlights of the region: indulge in Baden wines and delicious regional Black Forest cuisine.
The Black Forest is easy to reach from all directions. Some of the gourmet trails can be easily reached by train, too. All other routes are close to bus stops or hikers' car parks, where you can start your adventure straightaway.
More and more people want to explore and experience the impressive nature in the Black Forest — whether by hiking, by cycling or on a mountain bike. But we as humans are only guests here in the Black Forest — and the animals and plants are our hosts. That's why #RespectForNature is mandatory for all nature lovers, because only with respect we'll preserve the Black Forest in its beauty for our descendants.
You can find out more about the #respectfornature initiative on our profile page komoot.com/user/schwarzwaldtourismus or at respekt-schwarzwald.info.
